Interesting side stop (no dogs allowed)

Easy to park and a short walk to the top of the henge, which was interesting. Had to do this one on my own as Mr had to stay with our canine travelling companion. No dogs allowed... read more

There is not much to see here, just a massive bank of stones with a large "amphitheatre" - and only one remaining stone. However, archaeologically important. I was quite impressed with the size of it!

This was a stop on a walk we were doing, and is close to King Arthur's Round Table earthwork. It is up a hill, but worth it, as you come over the top and look down on the single remaining stone of the henge. There is a bank all around it, with one entrance point (seems to be angled towards...

Not sure what exactly I was expecting, but not what I found. What blew me away was trying to figure out not only why, but how on earth they did it. The work and effort involved to produce something so massive, transporting and stacking all those stones, would have been immense. It was beyond imagining, but for all that effort,... More

At first sight it is an enormous monument with not a lot to see, but ponder on the size of the henge ramparts, that every stone had to be carried in from the nearby Eamont River. In the middle is one remaining great standing stone. Ignore the M6 traffic noise and think about Neolithic or Bronze Age people gathering here.... More

There is a small car park at the side of the henge. It is well worth a visit. The atmosphere is amazing and the henge is a lot bigger than I expected

A steep bank surrounds the henge, and sadly only one standing stone remains. How responsible the sheep are for the others' demise is anyone's guess. A large circular path, which is tricky to walk around, affords great views. Unfortunately, it is poorly signposted, and probably easily overlooked, which is a shame, because it is an inspiring place, although, as a... More

Great place to visit. A bit steep to walk round but amazing history. Great to stand and think about what had happened in the area. Out of the way but worth finding it.

An usual henge monument well worth a visit. Very surreal in the sunset. One remaining standing stone within a high enclosed embankment.

Ancient man is always challenging. Think this could be better presented but amazing all the same You should also visit King Arthur's table down the hill. It's nothing to do with said king but a Neolithic platform and ditch.
